Isn’t “Statue of Liberty” a football play from the era when Snyder was a kid? Shouldn’t this be in the “Sports” forum? :>)
Michael, you watch movies. I read books. My favorite books are political thrillers. I can only read four or five in a row and I have to move to something less captivating for a short while. Why? Well, it’s one of two things. First, when you read story after story of how we about hit by terrorists and the CIA/FBI/Secret Service/Black Ops/Rogue Retired Government Assassin… and his girl friend… save the day you wonder how close to reality these novels are. Or, you believe the threat is there, is kept at bay by dedicated and superbly trained government agencies and you see the political fighting in D.C. where politics would trump the safety of the citizenry… just to score media points.
Fact… There ARE fanatics, both foreign and domestic, who would do harm to our way of life. Fact… We are blessed to have the people in place to keep us safe. Fact… Somewhere, sometime, one of those fanatics will be successful. Good people will die, just as with 9-11. We can wring our hands and hide in our closets or we can enjoy the freedoms and liberties we have become so accustomed to. I, for one, will take advantage of what we are blessed with here in America. If the Statue of Liberty should topple with me in it… If I happen to be collateral damage when that one act of terrorism is successful… The Good Lord has blessed me with a great time here on Earth and I am going to continue taking advantage of that.
I do despise the vehemence and hate we see displayed each and every day towards our President and our government. When the likes of Fox, Limbaugh, Beck, etc. encourage the citizenry, not to support the government but to take it down, I’m certain one could see tears falling from the eyes of the very Statue of Liberty you reference.
